Hombi’ Coco

by  Mario Gonsalves
I was on my way to Baby Beach in San Nicolas when I saw the coconut man in the hot sun sitting by himself as he watches the shore infront of him. As any other local I stopped for some fresh coconut water! Regardless if this man has been sitting there for hours or minutes without a client, the vibe that he gave when preparing my coconut is something truly unique to the island. The charisma, the jokes and the singing, I just had to take a shot of him! So I grabbed the camera just as he was finishing up. He cleans the table, I run over, and he throws what is left of the coconut to the birds and I snap! I knew I had something special, when I was home I realized just how special this capture was.
